Auto restart if Pi hangs

Post by dreamspy » Mon May 29, 2017 1:28 pm

Hi there

Is it possible to have the UPS auto restart (hard reset like pressing the RR button) if the Pi hangs?

regards

Hi, It is ready and working very well, testes already by some industrial customers. Included in the ongoing firmware update. Just doing the final tests of the RTC scheduler before we release it. Took very long, I know.
Warmest Regards

Excellent glad to hear. Will it be just enabled by default?

No, must be enabled by user (for security reasons) but it is ultra simple, simpler is not possible

OK, maybe I'm just lazy, but I can not figure out how to set up the PIco to restart the Pi if it should go into a non-responsive/hung state. Can you please clarify. I have downloaded the PDF doc for version 38 firmware....RDK

PiMaster.....I'm still VERY interested in this new feature. Can you supply additional instructions or programming details? I've read through the documentation and am not sure how to proceed. I have a real need for this as I have a unit which shuts down unexpectedly and I can not find any messages in the Pi logs to help me fix the issue.

Thanks...RDK

OK, I finally got it. Check out docs page 40-41 (http://www.forum.pimodules.com/viewtopi ... =25&t=4913) for the Gold Pin and then pages 70-71 for how to control the restart functions. Note, my HV3.0A came with the gold pin pre configured/soldered for a Pi V3. My current application if using a PiV2, so I have to unsolder and reposition the gold pin.

After I do that (soldering is not my best feature), I will test using the I2C commands detailed on Page 70-71....RDK
